Season 21 Power Rankings # 1

We're about a quarter of the way through Season 21, and it's time to see who lived up to the preseason hype, who faltered, and who surprised to date.  There's still a lot of time to turn it around though, so it's still anyone's game.  Without further adieu, here are the first power rankings of the season!
